    I saw this a few weeks ago, maybe he’s the one who started it 😂

    There’s also a series called pandemic on Netflix at the moment, coincidence?

    He's caused enough virus outbreaks in his time, but not usually among the users themselves...

    Frankly, having to deal with the consequences of his "work" on a daily basis, I have no time for the Harvard drop-out, no matter how much "good work" he may do with money made by practices that cost the rest of us many times as much to this day. He's a parasite and always will be.

    Ad hominem aside, it's the content I thought interesting.

    Bitter much?

    What Gates has achieved is astonishing; Jobs was more way inspirational though.

    Neither of them came close to the inventiveness of the people at Xerox Parc. In fact, most of what they "invented", they stole from those geniuses. But hey, predatory business practices are good for you!

    Nothing was “stollen”, don’t make stuff up.

    If the Xerox Park leadership had had 10% of the vision and commercial savvy of either Jobs or Gates there wouldn’t be a Microsoft or an Apple as we know them today.

    Incidentally one the top guys** at Xerox Park left and went to work for Jobs taking all the “A players” with him. People follow leaders.

    **He died recently as you know.

    Come Chrimbo, quite a lot will be Stollen.

    And if you don't know the difference between invention and appropriation - well, happy Virus Scanner World to you.

    So XPark got robbed by Apple and did nothing about it?

    Grow up mate.
